Celtic Fans Beware. The Snakish Brown-Brogue Wearing Staunch Are Back In Charge At Mordor.

Image for Celtic Fans Beware. The Snakish Brown-Brogue Wearing Staunch Are Back In Charge At Mordor.

I laughed out loud last night when I saw who had taken over in an interim capacity at Ibrox. What are the odds that these guys will remain on the permanent coaching team? Steven Davis and Alex Rae.

The uber-staunch. The “real Rangers men.”

Back in charge as so many of their fans have long desired.

People in command who “get the club” and what it’s about.

Everything that has gone wrong over there, everything that is awry, is summed up in the promotion of those two men.

One who is on the record as saying that the club he’s in charge of is not the one the fans think they are supporting and the other who has always looked to me like he gave up his best career haunting houses. If you get drunk on Buckfast on a stormy night, and slur the name Beetlejuice, Alex Rae is what comes to your door.

Celtic fans have nothing to fear from this lot.

One Ibrox fan site on Facebook has told us to “watch our backs” now that the brown-brogue brigade have their hands on the controls. At least these Peepul realise what it is they will be looking at for the next ten years.

That club has lurched from crisis into self-parody already. And what makes it all the more amazing is those pictures which have circulated online of a grinning Alex Rae, in the club blazer and tie, as the guest of the club at the weekend in a malefic echo of what The Mooch himself did to Van Bronckhorst last year.

Rae was clearly well aware of what a bad result on the day would bring for the manager, and had probably been sounded out already. It’s incredible, isn’t it? These people are snakes. They are vultures shoving each other aside to peck at the carcass. There is not a single one of them with a shred of loyalty or honour or decency.

I have no love for The Mooch; he got what he deserved.

But imagine having to work in a place like that, surrounded by these types.

But this is what their fans want; the Ruthless Peepul in charge.

Even if that translates to those who refused to sign contracts with Sevco when it was starting its journey through the leagues. They now have a man in the dugout who has publicly called the Survival Lie out as a fiction. They know it and we know it. He abandoned ship at the first chance he got … but he “gets the club.”

Yeah, we’re well aware of it.

Their fans have decried “project managers” and want experience.

Davis and Rae haven’t, between them, managed as much as a reserve match and these guys are taking the club into a European tie, a must win away game in the league and maybe even a cup semi-final.

But these guys “understand” the folks in the stands and that’s all that counts.

Obviously, they will not be trusted with the job in the long term.

Even this Ibrox board isn’t that crazy. But ignore all talk that they will “take their time” with the search because they can’t afford to leave these guys in place for too long and they know it.

I get the impression, though, that some of these fans are just happy to be represented by “two of their own.”

What a true statement, even if they don’t completely understand how true it is or why.

These people, without morals or scruples of any kind, are the perfect encapsulation of the club and as long as it has this mindset we have nothing at all to fear.

    Superb read well said James

  • Martin says:

    If you want to know why these two were appointed, look at whether they were already employees at the “clumpany”

  • Paddybhoy67 says:

    The Mooch gave them a semi before he left: Rae and Davis will have them ejaculating.

    • John Copeland says:

      Dave the lying King may have a concomitant part to play in this new the Rangers debacle ……they need money ,don’t they ? FAST ! By the way where did the dough come from to get rid of Beale and his posse ?

  • JimBhoy says:

    I can’t recall Davis buying into the kultchur, I may have missed that, he seems a level headed guy. Rae on the other hand is not the brightest. I dont listen to the programs he is on so much but I have seen many quotes on him making up his own words.

    The dressing room team talk with Rae may need an interpreter. His coaching and managerial careers haven’t really hit any high notes, normaly binned within a year it seems.

    Good point james on the high risk games to come. It is certainly a gamble maybe the board has shot themselves in the foot with this timing. There was speculation about the Beale losing the dressing room maybe that has contributed more to the timing than any other single thing.

    McInnes is the obvious choice but he turned it down before would they give him a second chance? Robinson would be a better choice but i am not sure if he one of the staunch mob or not. anyone know? I will find out, lass who works with me is going out with an Irish coach and commentator.

    Rae is spooky skull man.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Wee Quark with a suit on and a shirt&tie if it wasn’t a Saturday I would have said he was just back from court.

    Let’s hope they get a right good SCUDDING on Thursday and St Mirren beat them on Sunday or even a draw,then we will see how long the klan fans put up with them as a Comedy Act.

  • Tony B says:

    What a couple of “Staunchers”.

    Truly, there is nothing dumber or lower than a hun.

    Skeletor and ‘Walking away ‘

    Actually didn’t think the moleman would get the bullet this week?
    Simple reason, was I just couldn’t see anyone wanting to take on such a shit show at the scum?
    Never could have imagined that Laurel and Hardy would have been promoted into joining the Muppet Show.
    Just how desperate are these Peepul?
    Getting to of there so called own to run the asylum?
    That gormless eejit Rea, actually makes Gollum look intelligent, and still remains a cast off from the night of the living dead, now putting himself into the reality of a movie picture?
    As for that other runaway gimp Davis, will he actually bring his Zimmer frame into his new role?
    Still meant to be registered as a player, so what an inspirational figure he must be now, when looked upon as not been good enough to make a match day squad, amongst a heep of shite.
    Yet now going to be given the task of barking out the instructions?
    It’s not unusual for club’s to go into panic mode, when all plan’s go tits up and remain in tatters, but must be classed as the biggest form of desperation that I’ve ever seen taken by any club.
    The scum get, what the scum want, let that trend continue, as all the better for ourselves.
    Thankfully we have got a manager who won’t let the entertainment the scum provide, as any form of distraction for ourselves.
    We have much bigger fish to fry that the ones these two eejits are expected to serve up as a form of challenge to ourselves.
    This is nothing more than trying to buy time and getting lucky with such an appointment to keep a foaming zombie mob at bay?
    Only question remains as to long can they keep them at arm’s length before it gets uglier than Rea face, if that’s even possible?

    Warlord is waiting for the phone call been at a few sash bashes he fits the standards required

  • Gerry says:

    Uncle Vester and Runaway Davies

  • Joseph Mcaleer says:

    They get what the club represents but is it the football or something very its always Fluted.

  • Damian says:

    We only need to beware if they’re any good. They might be, but I doubt it. Until I see any sign that they’re up to it, I’m just going to enjoy the show.

  • Dora says:

    It’s been a great show/Larf so far so I’m very much looking forward to the main event—2 bluenosed halfwits taking their 1st steps on that plank of doom & gloom…good luck with that one!!

  • Patrick mcdaid says:

    Alex rae what a scarey face he has riddled with anger badness and why he is allowed to hang about castle greyskull isnt realy a mystery soon be halloween folkes but its amazing how these same old has beens of no impirtant crawl out from under same old stones .the rangers fans must be realy a bunch of thickos thinking rae can save them ..again..rill on celtic

  • Captain Sewing says:

    Reminiscent in some ways of our initial appointment of Lennon, only either he or the club at least had the sense to instal Parker, Thompson & Mjallby alongside him in the dugout. This is more akin to Lennon backed up by someone like Adam Virgo or Paul Telfer…. I see this ending well – for us!

  • Andy says:

    “gave up his best career haunting houses”.

    My God – that is pure genius and has had me laughing for about an hour!!!!

    Fair play to you.

  • Paul Mac says:

    “Davis and Rae haven’t, between them, managed as much as a reserve match”
    Not to be pedantic or anything but didn´t the Uber Staunch one manage Hundee a while back? Badly as I recall but he does have some limited experience… bet they get pumped on Thursday and if they lose at the weekend … what flavour jelly will everyone be having??

  • Walter Chinstrap says:

    Davis and Rae.
    Wallace & Vomit!

  • Gerry O’Neil says:

    Playing to the hordes the same Steven Davis who paid £3000 to get an emerald green carpet lifted for his wedding in Edinburgh to be replaced with a cream carpet.
    Dinasaurs that will never move on
